4th of July, 2012

4th of July, 2012

Without going into too much detail, this 4th was pretty wonderful. To sum it up: We stayed home, took the morning easy picking up the house and making 4th of July decorations with the kids. After naps, we headed out to the pool for some swimming fun, grilled brats for dinner, played with some toddler-like … Continue reading

Friday Fun Spot: 4th of July Fireworks

4th of July Poppers

We did minimal fireworks with the kids this year: snap poppers, sparklers, and tanks. Actually, Hudson and his buddy Baylor did snap poppers with Charles and that was about it. Ellisa wasn’t interested. She preferred going in and out of the house. Charles tried to get Hudson and Ellisa to do–or at least watch–the sparklers … Continue reading

Memorial Weekend 2012

Ellisa in Wildflowers

Well, this weekend wasn’t what I was hoping for but it was still pretty good. I won’t go into details, but Hudson got his first fever Saturday afternoon while we were staying at my dad’s. I was of course worried, and Hudson was of course an unhappy boy. It got up to 101.6 degrees that … Continue reading

Easter 2012

Easter 2012

I was trying to remember what we did last year for the twins first Easter and when I reread the blog entry Easter 2011, I was shocked to read that we did almost the exact same thing this Easter. We started off the day with some pickleball in Little Stacey Park. Courtney, Jess, Grandpa Walsh, … Continue reading

St. Patty's Day Artwork

This St. Patty’s Day was all over the place! I was at SXSW but my dad had the kids and celebrated with them in style. Luck of the Irish for them. 3/14: I celebrated St. Patty’s Day with the kids by doing their first official art work. I had high hopes they would love finger … Continue reading

100 Posts of Love!

Valentines Kisses

I started this blog one year ago today to document the lives of my little peanuts and our family. I wasn’t sure I could keep up with it, but I’d say having 100 posts to-date makes my first year a success! Let’s hope we have another successful year filled with health, laughter, growth, fond memories, lots … Continue reading

Christmas and New Year’s Write-Up 2011

Ellisa Dancing with Santa

This has easily been the best Christmas I have had since being an adult. The Purma’s came into town and we did nothing but truly enjoying ourselves. Going to see Santa, Christmas cookie making, home-made meals (Thank You Vicki!), lots of presents, and tons of family and love made for the best Christmas ever. The … Continue reading

Merry Christmas to You!

A Santa Sitting

I just couldn’t do cards this year. Instead, I’m wishing all my family and friends a very Merrry Christmas and Happy New Year virtually. I expect this tradition will likely continue. And to all of you who’ve been supportive this year (you know who you are), thank you so much for helping make this a … Continue reading
